i have a LEADTEK DTV1000T and i live in MELBOURNE and i have searched the forums for answers but could not find any complete answers. i just downlaoded MEDIA PORTAL yesterday and i luv the program, although i cant get the live tv to work. i cant seem to detect any channels, because it doesnt't detect my card. im guessing i need some drivers or somethin to get my dtv1000T workin wit this program. PLEASE HELP!

You need the drivers to be 'BDA', but what i just looked at about the product is that it works in XP Media Center Edition 2005 so therefor is soud work in media portal

    Make sure you follow the instructions. Most of the page is in German, but there is an English translation of the instructions. That's how important they are ;-)

    As for the card, it should be supported. As has been said, make sure you have installed the BDA drivers. These are the univeral standard for TV tuner cards (Like Twain is for scanners).

    nope, it's just that sometimes there are a number of different drivers.
    You can have WDM, BDA or asome other type of proprietry ones. If the card has any instructions for Media Centre then follow those...

    Otherwise, it couldn't hurt to re-install. Support was added a few weeks ago for your card, so it should be found.

    Also, it can't hurt to check out what Device Manager says about your card. Post back here what the card is being called in Windows. Maybe someone else with the same card can relay their results too../

    Sorry to disappoint you but Media Portal only offers recording and scheduled recording for TV broadcast over SAT, Cable or OTA.
